Mine Trap

Mine Trap

Updated Set Design with New Puzzles!

You and your team of miners were hard at work deep underground in one of the most dangerous jobs in the world.  Then your greatest fear was realized – part of the Black Iron coal mine collapsed trapping you and your team underground and in the dark.  The clock has now started.  You know that oxygen is limited, and it’s only a matter of time until you suffocate.  You must break through the fallen rock and wooden support beams, navigate the chambers of the mine and escape into the mine shaft elevator that will take you to safety.  But your path is wrought with peril and dangers.  It will take team work, collaboration, and speed to survive, but if you can escape, you’ll be honored as heroes by the adoring crowds!


Mine Trap features a stunning entrance and is filled with some of the best props, puzzles, and set design we have.  It has incredible, dynamic game play that’s a fan favorite, though this game is best for those who have played an escape room before.  It gives you the eerie feel of a collapsed mine, but the expansive rooms and tall ceilings leave you without a claustrophobic feeling.  Mine Trap will challenge you on multiple dimensions and give you an hour-long experience like never before.

  • 5 star review  The room was well themed and was well done, but it was a little tough for us. The customer service blew me away, though! We had a concern with the room and the staff were kind enough to accommodate us. At the end of the game, I lost my wedding ring in the game room! The staff were so nice to give us a little extra time and helped look with us until we found it. Best service I've ever had anywhere!

  • 5 star review  Had so much fun at Escape Tactic. My date and I were paired with 3 other people so there would be enough to solve the puzzles. Even though they had never done and escape room we managed to "lift King Tut's curse" with 6 minutes to spare! The self proclaimed "most clueless" player even found the final clue making for a perfect ending! The rooms were clean and interesting and the staff was friendly and engaged making for a fantastic experience! We will definitely be back to try more rooms!

  • 5 star review  My fiance and I did King Tut's tomb. This was our first experience ever with an escape room. Thanks to Megan(staff member), the other staff and people we played with, our experience was amazing. It was something different and fun. The location was a plus because the night continued after we did the room. There were many places to chose from to socialize and drink. I would recommend this place to anyone. We will be returning to experience the other rooms!

  • 5 star review  We tried the King Tut's Curse room and had an awesome time. The staff was helpful and concise. The atmosphere was relaxed and fun. It ended up just being our party of 3, so our staff member (Calvin) did an excellent job getting us through the room while still letting us struggle. We thought the multi-room aspect was very intriguing especially since not every escape room we've been to had that. We will definitely be going back to Escape Tactic for another great experience!

  • 5 star review  This was my first time trying an escape room and I had a great time. The room was difficult and we weren’t able to escape, but now that we know how it “works” I am excited to go back and try another room. Alex was such an awesome game master - have us great clues to help us along and made the experience so much fun!

  • 5 star review  First time to an escape room and I have to say that it was an absolute awesome experience. The facility is clean and has an great atmosphere. My team successfully completed the mine trap room, I love the back story that came along with the room, I felt like a little kid again on a real live treasure hunt!!!! Tyler at the front desk was a lot of fun he even took time out of his day after to show us around the facility he was a true pleasure. We left planning to go back, if only we could agree on which room to try next!!!

  • 5 star review  Our game master Aaron was very nice. It was our first time and enjoyed it very much. My 11 yrs old was scared but he made her feel comfortable, even gave her a flashlight and had a blast in the end.

  • 5 star review  Every business in the area that designs escape rooms has their own style and puzzle solutions so be sure to approach the rooms at Escape Tactic with an open mind. If you've finished rooms at other locations in town, just remember that their strategies for revealing clues could be very different than those the designers use here. That said, our group had a great time in both rooms we've played here and will definitely be back.

  • 5 star review  Went here last year when my parents came to visit, and we still talk about it to this day. They do an amazing job here. The puzzles are challenging and exciting. This was our first escape room, but we figured out some tactics for our next visit. The staff were super friendly and helpful, and we will be back!

  • 5 star review  Had a work team bonding event and our group was in the Amazon room. The room itself was so well done providing you with a great experience. The puzzles were also very creative and had our group working together as a team to get through the room. Would love to come back with friends as well and try another room.
